Are there any non-surgical procedures to make my nose smaller, or is surgery my only option?
Non-surgical Nose Job Procedures to Reduce Nose Size?

Non surgical rhinoplasty isn't for big noses
Unfortunately injectable rhinoplasty by its very nature can't make your nose smaller. Very occasionally a 'liquid rhinoplasty' can create the illusion of a smaller nose, but this is rare. Injectable rhinoplasty is for creating straighter nasal bridges, straightening slightly bend noses and for 'touch ups' after rhinoplasty.
Reducing nose size
In the case of a slightly larger nose and a short chin, increasing chin projection with an implant or a sliding genioplasty will help to improve facial harmony even if a reduction rhinoplasty cannot be done at the time.
Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty for the Big Nose
Technically it is not possible to reduce the size of the nose with a "non-surgical" rhinoplasty. However, a non-surgical rhinoplasty can make some noses look smaller. Some examples of change the shape to create the appearance of a smaller nose:
1. A nose with a deep radix and a large bony hump.
2. A nose with an deep angle between the upper lip and the bottom of the nose (acute naso-labial angle).
Based on the one profile photograph, I would recommend an endo-nasal reduction rhinoplasty. However, in general it is best to consult a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon for more specific advice and photo-morphing to obtain the best results.

Nonsurgical Rhinoplasty: Benefits and Limitations
Injecting fillers, such as Restylane, Juvederm, and Radiesse, in the nose can be helpful for certain patients who would benefit from additional volume in certain specific areas. Adding filler can cause certain noses to appear less deviated, improve symmetry, and fill indentations after prior rhinoplasty. Sometimes, adding filler above a hump can make it appear less prominent.
However, there is no nonsurgical way to make a nose smaller. I would recommend that you seek consultation with a surgeon who performs both traditional (surgical) rhinoplasty as well as nasal fillers. That way, you would have access to all the different options out there for your nose. Computer imaging is a very valuable exercise during the consultation, for you to express your aesthetic goals and for the surgeon to express what she/he could do with fillers vs. rhinoplasty. Lastly, from your photo, it appears that you may benefit from a chin implant as well, as a more projecting chin will make your nose appear more balanced with the rest of your face.
Your nose appears too large for a non-surgical rhinoplasty procedure.
I reviewed your profile photo. Your nose is a bit on the large side, and you have a mildly retrusive chin which makes your nose appear large.
I think your best option for the most pleasing aesthetic would be rhinoplasty surgery to lower your bridge, and deproject your tip. Try to consult a specialist that performs both rhinoplasty surgery, and non-surgical rhinoplasty so you could see the difference with computer imaging. You should consider chin implant surgery as well.
I hope this is helpful for you.
